We're not sure if you were aware, but it's World AIDS Day today. Now, we're not your mother, and we're not here to scold you, but if you think we're out of the woods when it comes to the disease, you'd be all sorts of wrong. While we live in 2010 and we have cars that can park themselves and a trillion songs in the palm of your hands and soda with no calories, we still do not have a cure for AIDS, and that means there are people in the world who are still suffering from the disease. Not good, people. No matter who you are, what your religion, race or sexual preference, no human should have to live with any illness.
Luckily, more and more people are becoming aware of the issue, which is good. But awareness isn't all. We need people to give time and money to the cause to create change. We felt that it couldn't hurt to share with you some of the creative, interesting and fabulous things that different people and organizations have cooked up for this day of awareness that will hopefully serve as the impetus for worldwide change.
After all, as the old saying goes, knowledge is power.
